A privately-owned, fully-equipped, spoiling bush lodge, romantically hidden between the lush & mysterious hills of Takaka Hill just aside of the park itself, less then half an hour drive from Motueka city centre.
Expect a dramatic way in and out of the private-grounds, which will...More

Hi Parker & Ariane
It was a pleasure to meet you both and I hope the rest of your trip to NZ continues to go well. You won't want to hear that the sun has been out ever since you left!

As with most Lodges, we are not close to restaurants or shops. You pass through Motueka where there are 2 supermarkets about 20 minutes before getting to the Lodge. If you have day-trips out of Kaiteriteri or Marahau then dining at Hooked or Fat Tui are recommended. Riverside in Lower Moutere, 25 minutes, and The Boatshed and Jellyfish in Mapua, 40 minutes away, are also favourites.
We have 2 products - Dinner Bed & Breakfast - for the full Lodge experience or Self-Contained for a peaceful escape in nature, our Bush Chalets and Bush Lodges have small well-equipped kitchen and BBQ with basic supplies such as milk, yoghurt, jams, eggs, cheese, cereals, fruit, herbs, oil, tea and coffee etc
